I'm a beginner French student and just got into this problem after reading the sentence below, which format should I use ? I read something that said:

Dites-lui qu'il n'est pas le seul

But what I thought it should be like:

Dites-lui qu'il n'est pas seul (without le)

If the first sentence is true why le is used?


1 Answer 1


"Dites-lui qu'il n'est pas le seul." means:

Tell him he's not the only one.

But on the other side, "Dites-lui qu'il n'est pas seul." means:

Tell him he is not alone.
